Mezcal Insights

Cultural Depth and Legacy

Mezcal is deeply woven into the cultural fabric of Mexico. Rooted in indigenous traditions, it has been crafted for generations using methods that honour ancestral wisdom. The artisanal production process embodies a reverence for the land, agave, and the hands that cultivate and distil this cherished spirit.

Distinctive Agave Varietals

Mezcal is celebrated for its wide variety of agave species, each offering a unique flavour profile. Whether it's the bold flavours of Espadín, the floral notes of Tobalá, or the earthy character of Madrecuixe, each agave contributes to Mezcal's diverse and complex taste.

Traditional Production Techniques

Traditional Mezcal production follows ancient methods that have been passed down through generations. The heart of the agave, known as the piña, is roasted in underground pits, giving Mezcal its characteristic smokiness. The roasted piñas are then crushed, fermented, distilled, and often bottled by hand, preserving the authenticity and artistry of the craft.

Art of Agave Roasting

Roasting the agave piñas is a fundamental step in Mezcal production. The piñas are slow-cooked in earthen pits lined with rocks and covered with agave fibres. This process imparts the smoky, roasted flavours that are a hallmark of Mezcal. The type of wood and time spent roasting influence the final flavour.

Terroir and Agave's Impact

Much like wine, Mezcal's flavour is influenced by the region where the agave is grown. Terroir plays a significant role in shaping the taste, as factors like soil, climate, and altitude contribute to the agave's growth and its ultimate flavour nuances.

Mezcal Types and Styles

Mezcal is available in various styles, offering a spectrum of tastes for every palate. Joven Mezcal is young and un-aged, showcasing the raw essence of the agave. Reposado and Añejo Mezcal are aged, mellowing the spirit and often infusing it with subtle oak notes. Exploring these styles provides a glimpse into the range of flavours Mezcal offers.

Mezcal and Cocktails

Mezcal's smoky and complex profile makes it a favourite in mixology. It adds a distinct character to cocktails, from classic concoctions like the Oaxaca Old Fashioned to modern creations that play with its unique flavours. The interplay between Mezcal and other ingredients leads to innovative and enticing cocktails.

What a drop. Considering the strength this gives a lot of subtlety. The kind of exciting agave spirit I’m always after.
Ok, so this bottle didn't last very long! Am absolutely loving Raicilla over Tequila and Mezcal and the Estancia was fantastic! It's hands down the best spirit that I've come across to make a tommy's margarita. It was so good I actually didn't even try it as a sipper!
Corralejo Reposado is the best tequila to make absolutely divine Margaritas, Grapefruit Margaritas, that is!
